A young college student discovered that racism is alive and well in high end retailing. Trayon Christian is suing Barney’s Department store and the NYPD for violating his rights after the retailer accused him of credit card fraud.

Christian, 19, went to the Madison Avenue Barney’s in NY to purchase a Ferragamo belt after spotting his favorite rapper, Juelz Santana, wearing the expensive accessory. Christian saved his money by working extra shifts at his part-time job. He was finally able to purchase the luxury $349 Salvatore Ferragamo belt, which he paid for with a debit card in his name.
